Marseille’s Elyas drops four-track techno EP ‘Homecoming’ on his Seclusion label. Previously appearing on Modularz, Olympian, and Soma, France’s Elyas has been pushing quality techno for close to a decade, having played at prestigious venues such as Tresor, Berghain, Corsica Studios, amongst others. 

For his latest effort, ‘Homecoming’ for his Seclusion imprint, Elyas prepares four stomping techno weapons tinged with psychedelic atmospherics.

Leading the release, ‘Azimuth inverted’ sees tripped out basslines and sharp percussion meeting warped FX for a driving opener, before the title track ‘Homecoming’ follows with emotive pads and sliced up vocal samples under pounding kick drums. 

‘Anxiety’ brings hypnotic, rolling low end together with oscillating synths, before the final cut ‘Transmutation’ closes the EP with an ever-evolving, dense techno jam.
